    Service supercharger or not?

    Checked slipping moment on a friend s gtx 255 IS and is 10Nm which is good. Ski runs fine at 68+mph. Supecharger kit is 3yrs old done 80hrs. The ..102 kit was installed. Would you change any part of the supercharger? Or leave it as is for this coming riding season and service sc next winter? He s riding for 20-30 hrs every season..

    Had my 06 215 sc skis since 08. Rebuilt my chargers once. Rxt was 180hrs at rebuild. Now have over 300 hrs on my rxt on 1 rebuild and 4 years now. Rxp has maybe 30hrs on the charger. No issues. The skis may be old but run like a dream. Maybe this year I'll pull the rxts and have it done. Only issue with that rxt is the starter button got worn out at 200hrs. Talk about reliability. Still runs 67mph on gps with 300 plus hrs Click image for larger version.

    Personally always did it at 100 hrs... I would rather spend a few hundred on rebuilding a supercharger then a few thousand rebuilding a engine and supercharger... But that's just me.

    Rebuild at 100/Rebuild at 200??? The newest kits say that they are good for 200 hours. Do you really trust that, or is it safe to say after 100 hours of supercharger asss whoopin fun that it would probably be a good idea to rebuild it? I think better safe than sorry IMHO. That is one part that can really take a beating and I personally would feel better knowing that its good and fresh every 100 hours. Everyone is entitled to their own ideas I suppose.

    At 80 hours I would still ride it for another season, that's a 200 rated kit you have. You may rebuild now and get a bad bearing and boom it fails at 25 hours, it has happened.

    1. 2 years - is that anywhere near as important as 100 hours?
    Yes very important. The bearing cages are plastic and get brittle over time and risk failing. If a bearing fails then you can toss your supercharger into the garbage and you will need a replacement.

    Just sharing others recommendations...

    Yes rebuild every 100 hours is what I would do and have done. Even with the new "200" hr superchargers I would still do it, but as I said that's just me.
